    I have been working at Palo Alto Research Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are surrounded by extremely smart and capable people. The opportunities available to you and the impact you can have on technology is amazing in the true sense of the word. Located in the heartland of the Tech industry and exposed to cutting edge ideas and innovations.

    Cons

    Disorganized management at the moment due to the upcoming split in the parent company. No clear path forward or investment in disruptive research which is the DNA of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stability is key in making sure your employees stay happy and focus. There doesn't seem to be a clear path forward given the culture of the company and where Xerox wants to go.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Palo Alto Research Center (Palo Alto, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied several times for the same position, over months. Spoke to the hiring manager, then dont hear anything back from the recruiter, and see the job reposted online. No answer when I asked the recruiter again
